Never been a big fan but when a colleague of mine said she has extra free tickets, I promptly said YES! [who doesn’t love free tickets anyways? I always have a thing for free tix..:)]
What: Dewa 19 Live in KL
Where: Stadium Negara
When: 22 Dec 07, 8pm
I seriously thought I would leave the gigs early – the thought that the concert will be surrounded by Indons and rempits and the lack of Dewa songs that fills my Pod and phone fills my head – but turned out I underestimated the band. The crowd was amazingly ramai but thanks to the VIP tickets, we seated ourselves nicely on the stairs, few layers away from the stage (we came late so there were no seats available- leave us no choice but to settle on the ‘comfy’ stairs). Dewa appeared fashionably late – around 9.15pm like that.
Still, I thought I would leave the concert halfway, due to the ‘unknown songs factor’- but turned out I know most of the songs that were played that night : Pupus, Aku Cinta Kau dan Dia, Risalah Cinta, Dewi, etc. The guests artists are Sheila Majid (never fancy her), Rabbani (phew, should get their CDs soon!) and also Mulan from Ratu (Mulan who…?)
The show lasted for about 2 hours before they sing the famous song Dewi. Who know that I would had that much fun? We (me Liza and Ajak) sang our lungs out and truth be told, I was entertained! Luckily I didn’t turn down the free tix offer at the 1st place..
Ps: Lots and lots of international act performing next year. Can’t wait!
